CODE BLACK

LIMITED EDITION RAM 2500 CODE BLACK LANDS IN OZ WITH BLING BUT NO STING.

WORDS TRISTAN TANCREDI

RAM HAS launched its limited edition 2500 Code Black on to the Australian market.

Much like the Ranger FX4, Hilux TRD and Colorado Z71, the Code Black – RAM’s first Australian limited edition version of the 2500 – has mainly been built to keep up appearances. However, it comes with class-leading rubber in the form of Nitto ‘Terra Grappler” 275/65R20 A/T 126/123R all-terrain tyres. These surround 20-inch black alloy wheels and are protected by heavy-duty wheel arch flares, also black.

The aesthetic upgrades mainly involve – as the name suggests – black paint, which has been splashed over the special edition RAM 2500’s grille, front and rear bumpers, the door-mounted rearview mirrors, and the badging.

Other than this cosmetic treatment, the special edition RAM 2500 is standard. A 6.7-litre Cummins turbo-diesel engine – capable of generating 276kW and a mammoth 1084Nm – is carried over and enables the ute to tow up to a massive 6942kg.

American Special Vehicles engineers all right-hand drive RAM utes for Australia and each vehicle is covered by a three year/100,000km warranty, which includes full parts and service support from a nationwide dealer network.
